Calor Rural Community Fund

Help power your community with the Calor Rural Community Fund.


Does your community project need some financial support?

The Calor Rural Community Fund launched in 2017 with the ambition to support projects in rural communities, turning big ideas into a reality. In this time, we’re incredibly proud to have been able to support 214 projects with over £460,000 generated through donations and Calor contributions. You can check out some of these projects here.

We’re giving you a platform to raise awareness of the work you’re doing for your local area. That’s why we’re working with Crowdfunder, to give you even more tools to generate support and raise donations, so you get your community projects off to a flying start! As if that wasn’t enough, we’re also giving away £85,000 in funding! So what are you waiting for? Join the Calor Rural Community Fund and support your local community.

Title: used for titles only

You can not remove the title. If you want only an image background, click on the title and change it for an SEO friendly (and not long) text, delete every CSS class and add this in stead: 'cf-visually-hidden'. Then go ahead and remove everything else from here. Same applies on both sides.

How will the Community Fund work this year?

In 2021, Projects have the opportunity to use the crowdfunding platform to raise awareness for their initiative, giving them the chance to raise money for their project through the crowd. We want to encourage communities to come together and support each other’s ideas – the more ambitious the better!

From the £85,000 funding pot Calor are giving away there will be three levels of funding available, depending on the size of your project. We’ll be dishing out 11 x £5,000 grants, 6 x £2,500 grants and 5 x £1,000 grants to the winning rural projects. Even if you’re not a winner, your community spirit won’t go unnoticed - every finalist will receive £500.

Applications are now open, check out our terms and conditions to see if your community project ticks all the boxes. You can also register for news and updates around the fund.
